What to expect from Sunday's snow as North Wales weather warning is extended

Daily Post 23/01/2021 Joel Leaver

Parts of North Wales woke to a thick layer of snow this morning - and there might be even more to come.

The region has faced severe weather in recent days as Storm Christoph caused havoc in the UK.

Flooding devastated some areas on Thursday (January 21), but the latest impact on local areas has been snow.

This has covered parts of Flintshire, including villages like Pantasaph and Brynford which were blanketed.

Photos taken on Saturday morning showed the area covered in a thick layer of snow, along with towns like Holywell.

Other counties have also been affected by the weather, including parts of Conwy such as Llysfaen.

It comes following weather warnings which were issued for North Wales by the Met Office earlier this week.

A snow and ice warning was in place on Saturday morning, but another will begin at 3am on Sunday.

This was initially set to last until 6pm tomorrow but the Met Office has now extended it until at least 9pm.

The warning encompasses most of the region with only coastal areas not currently included in its scope.

The Met Office said there's a "chance of disruption" in England and Wales throughout the warning period.

It expects possible travel delays but has also warned that "some rural communities could become cut off".

Between 1cm and 3cm of snow is expected "across much of the warning area" though not all areas will have lying snow.

Areas above 100m are likely to be worst affected, with the Met Office noting that power cuts "may occur".

Currently, there are no weather warnings set to come into force in the UK from Monday (January 25).

The outlook for early next week suggests "plenty of sunshine" though heavy rain is expected in Wales too.
